Genetic and genomic evidence of niche partitioning and adaptive radiation in mountain pine beetle fungal symbiontsDownload
Ojeda Alayon, Dario I., Tsui, Clement K.M., Feau, Nicolas, Capron, Arnaud, Dhillon, Braham, Zhang, Yiyuan, Massoumi Alamouti, Sepideh, Boon, Celia K., Carroll, Allan L., Cooke, Janice E.K., Roe, Amanda D., Sperling, Felix A.H., Hamelin, Richard C.
Bark beetles form multipartite symbiotic associations with blue stain fungi (Ophiostomatales, Ascomycota). These symbionts play an important role during the beetle’s life cycle by providing nutritional supplementation, overcoming tree defenses and modifying host tissues to favor...
Leptographium piriforme sp. nov., from a Taxonomically Diverse Collection of Arthropods Collected in an Aspen-Dominated Forest in Western CanadaDownload
During a survey of fungi associated with arthropods collected in a southern boreal mixedwood forest in Alberta we obtained 29 isolates of a unique species of Leptographium. This species displayed a distinct combination of characteristics, including curved conidia on short-stipitate conidiophores,...
The contribution of genetics and genomics to understanding the ecology of the mountain pine beetle systemDownload
Environmental change is altering forest insect dynamics worldwide. As these systems change, they pose significant ecological, social, and economic risk through, for example, the loss of valuable habitat, green space, and timber. Our understanding of such systems is often limited by the complexity...
